The Halcyon Archipelago of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 15.596 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ko-oren City. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The enormous but inefficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 trillion Koronas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,413 Koronas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is various.

Ko-oren is ranked 87,883rd in the world and 117th in Atlantian Oceania for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
